Nothing heard before, I will try again.
I have a USB 2 Sony Microvault 256Meg pen drive.
I am running SID.
The pen drive is recognized as a hub and mass storage device and listed
as sda1 sda2 sda3 sda4.
The devices are listed properly in usbview.
But, I cannot mount it. I have gone through mount -t vfat /dev/sdax
/usbstcik for all four and get error of "wrong fs type, bad option, bad
superblock on /dev/sdax or too many mounted file systems"
Trying fdisk results in an error "unable to read /dev/sdax"
Anyone using this particular pen drive successfully? Any suggestions?
I am using a Memorex pen drive without difficulty on same machine.
What is frustrating is the device is recognized so there must be a way
to make it work and, of course, it works under Windows so the device is
What do you have listed in fstab for proc?
#usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs rw,devmode=0660,devgid=432 0
#none /proc/bus/usb usbfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
the first commented out entry would let me mount a usb harddrive, but
not a pendrive. Same with the 2nd. The third lets me mount both the
harddrive and the pendrive, BUT I had to change the fstab entry for the
hardrive from sdb1 to sda1 and the pendrive from sda to sdb. If you
realy have 4 partitions on your pendrive then good, if you only have one
partition on the drive then you need sda. I don't understand all this,
it is close to magic. I guess this is why Linus does not like this
system and a new one is out with 2.6.0 kernels. Hope this helps
